Candice Accola

Michael Trevino on 'The Vampire Diaries' Power Couple Caroline and Tyler: Their Relationship Is Genuine

by Jean Bentley, posted Oct 20th 2011 9:00AM
The Vampire DiariesLast week on 'The Vampire Diaries' brought us one of the biggest game-changers of the season thus far: Tyler, who was previously only burdened with the curse of turning into a werewolf every full moon, became the first successful (read: alive) member of Klaus' half-werewolf, half-vampire hybrid army.

When AOL TV caught up with star Michael Trevino on the Atlanta-area set of 'The Vampire Diaries,' he somehow very skillfully avoided spilling any of those secrets about his character, despite the fact that we watched him film a scene where he used his new vampire powers and didn't think anything of it.

While some of our chat is old news by now, read on for the still-relevant parts, including Trevino's thoughts on kissing scenes with Candice Accola, filming those intense werewolf transformations and Season 1 Tyler being a d-bag. And don't forget to check out our behind-the-scenes video from the set!

'The Vampire Diaries' Stars Preview 'Smells Like Teen Spirit' (VIDEO)

by Jean Bentley, posted Oct 17th 2011 4:00PM
The Vampire Diaries, Smells Like Teen SpiritIt was unseasonably warm for late September when AOL TV visited the Monroe, Ga. set of 'The Vampire Diaries' last month. But the 92-degree weather set the scene all the better for 'Smells Like Teen Spirit,' the episode the cast and crew were filming that day.

Although it's the sixth episode of the third season, it's actually the Mystic Falls High gang's first day of senior year. (We've only gone a year since the pilot.) That means cheerleading practice, football practice, and everything else that comes with having good ol' fashioned school spirit.

We haven't been able to share the details of our visit until now, so please enjoy this behind-the-scenes peek at 'Smells Like Teen Spirit' and watch Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley, Candice Accola, Michael Trevino and Matt Davis doing their best to share some spoiler-free details about the episode. Plus, you'll get a look at the Mystic Falls Timberwolves' newest cheerleader. You might've seen her before somewhere...

'The Vampire Diaries' Season 3, Episode 3 Recap

Stefan, Vampire Diaries['The Vampire Diaries' - 'The End of the Affair']

I'm not one to pick favorites. Some people can name their top five favorite movies/songs/shows/etc. upon request, and some are doomed to a life of indecision. I'm one of the latter -- honestly, choosing five episodes of 'The Vampire Diaries' for our "Essential Episodes" series took about two weeks. But there is one thing I'm absolutely certain of: 'The End of the Affair' is my number one favorite 'TVD' episode of all time.

Alternately heartbreaking, hilarious, beautiful, engrossing and 100 percent enjoyable -- what more could you ask for in a high-school-set teen drama?

Q&A: Candice Accola of 'The Vampire Diaries' Has Real-Life Daddy Trouble, Too

by Jean Bentley, posted Sep 29th 2011 12:30PM
Candice AccolaAt the end of last week's 'Vampire Diaries,' poor, abused Caroline Forbes was tied up in a dungeon-like basement (why are there so many freaky, torture-ready chambers in Mystic Falls?) as her heretofore unseen father, played by 'Heroes' star Jack Coleman, prepared to "fix" her so she wouldn't be a vampire anymore. Pretty heavy stuff for just the second episode of the season.

Having discussed Season 3 with Candice Accola, who plays Caroline, on the Atlanta-area 'Vampire Diaries' set just a few weeks ago, AOL TV knows that her character is safe (for now). Accola spilled plenty of scoop about Caroline's budding romance with werewolf Tyler, the sex scenes that make her dad uncomfortable, and Caroline's mindset this year, but she played coy about her impending daddy issues. Frankly, we're kind of worried that she's such a fantastic liar.

Comic-Con Q&A: The 'Vampire Diaries' Cast On Season 3 Lip-Locking & More (VIDEO)

by Laura Prudom, posted Jul 24th 2011 2:00AM
Ian Somerhalder, Nina Dobrev, Paul WesleyThe cast of 'The Vampire Diaries' knows how to keep a secret -- in fact, we're pretty sure their jobs depend on their ability to do so.

Lucky for fans who love surprises, but unlucky for reporters on the Comic-Con press line for the hit CW show, their lips were shut tighter than the entrance to Katherine's tomb.

Still, we managed to unearth a few hints about what we can expect from Season 3, including what Stefan's new alliance with Klaus might mean for his future with Elena ("He's trying to hold on as much as he can to the humanity that's left inside of him," Paul Wesley said) and what more we might learn about Klaus ("Maybe see a little more vulnerability to him, a little more of a human side," Joseph Morgan ventured. "... if he has such a thing.")

And we also got some insight into what Damon and Elena's mindsets will be when the show returns: "Damon's pissed," Ian Somerhalder said matter-of-factly. And about that kiss? "I'm never gonna hear the end of this one, am I?," laughed Nina Dobrev.

One more thing about that kiss: Somerhalder was wondering if we were all watching the same "steamy, passionate kiss" in the finale that he was. From his vantage point, there was nothing sexy about it.

Doesn't matter -- we hear there's plenty more lip-locking to come in the season premiere. Watch the video for more scoop.

'Vampire Diaries' Stars Talk Ghosts, Romance & Season 3 Start Date

by Laura Prudom, posted Jun 7th 2011 1:00PM
Steven R. McQueenBright and early last Tuesday morning, reporters from across the globe gathered in a chic London hotel to sit down with three of the luminous young stars of The CW's 'Vampire Diaries,' Candice Accola (Caroline), Katerina Graham (Bonnie) and Steven McQueen (Jeremy) -- needless to say, it was an attractive room.

Though Graham informed us that they couldn't reveal much about season three's mysteries, since the writers were returning to work the very same day, she did confirm the tentative airdate for the season three premiere: Thurs., September 8. Better start stocking up on vervain, 'TVD' fans.

Spoilers were off-limits, but the three stars were willing to offer some speculation on the direction of their characters next year, including Jeremy's newfound abilities and Caroline's tumultuous love life.

'The Vampire Diaries' Cast Talks Klaus & Season 3 Wishes (VIDEO)

Joseph Morgan as Klaus, 'The Vampire Diaries'Have you heard? Klaus is coming.

Yes, 'Vampire Diaries' fans, I know that's all anyone can talk about these days, but come on -- the guy is an Original. We've witnessed some pretty powerful supernatural stuff on that show, but Klaus' arrival will absolutely be the craziest thing we've seen yet.

We hit the Atlanta set of 'The Vampire Diaries' to catch up with the cast and talk all about the O.G. fanged one's arrival in Mystic Falls. Who's met Klaus so far? And who's gone head-to-head with him? "Actually I've just shot one scene with him so far," Paul Wesley revealed. "It was pretty submissive ... one of us was relatively submissive. [laughs]"

Katerina Graham dished about Bonnie's inevitable showdown with Klaus: "She's the one person -- that's been revealed -- that can stop him. ... So I don't think she's expecting to just fly to Hawaii and forget about him for a while."

The 'Vampire Diaries' Cast Talks Twitter & Who Convinced Paul Wesley to Tweet (VIDEO)

'The Vampire Diaries' finally returns this week (Thurs., April 7, 8PM ET on The CW), but if you're like me, you've been keeping up with the cast on Twitter over this way too long hiatus.

Since there's been little news lately about what's coming next -- save the arrival of Klaus, who'll be played by Joseph Morgan -- it was huge news when Stefan Salvatore himself, Paul Wesley, finally joined Twitter after years of refusing.

The Vampire Diaries

We hit the 'Vampire Diaries' set in Atlanta to catch up with Paul and costars Nina Dobrev, Ian Somerhalder, Candice Accola, Zach Roerig, Kat Graham, Steven McQueen, Matt Davis and Sara Canning. They all opened up about who they follow on Twitter and decided who gets credit for finally getting Paul to tweet.

Nina Dobrev & Candice Accola Talk 'Vampire Diaries' Return, Casting Klaus & More (VIDEO)

Nina Dobrev & Candice Accola, The Vampire DiariesI don't need a bunch of "Catch VD" billboards to get me excited for tonight's 'Vampire Diaries' return ... I caught VD a long time ago.

After a hiatus that felt way too long, the vampires, werewolves and residents of Mystic Falls are back (Thurs., Jan. 27, 8PM ET on The CW), and they're not alone. The show has become known for its generous sprinkling of cliffhangers -- often, as the cast is quick to point out, in the middle of episodes -- but nothing has been more anticipated than the arrival of the Originals, including yet-to-be-cast vamp Klaus.

I caught up with stars Nina Dobrev and Candice Accola to hear who they'd cast as the big bad vampire. We also talked about Tyler's big transformation (plenty more where that came from!), more werewolves coming to town and what time period Dobrev would love to flash back to as her fanged alter-ego Katherine. Want more? Well watch the video already.

'The Vampire Diaries' Set Visit: Cliffhangers, On-Set Pranks & ... a Musical Episode? (VIDEO)

by Maggie Furlong, posted Dec 10th 2010 1:00PM
I know, I know ... no new 'Vampire Diaries' for weeks feels like an eternity living among the undead. But just because the show isn't on your TV doesn't mean you can't hang out with its stars.

We visited Mystic Falls, a.k.a. the 'TVD' set in Atlanta (more on the top-secret episode they were shooting in a few months), to catch up with a vampire, a werewolf, a witch, a kid who can't be killed and the most clueless guy in town. Translation: Caroline (Candice Accola), Tyler (Michael Trevino), Bonnie (Katerina Graham), Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) and Matt (Zach Roerig).

They dish about last night's fall finale cliffhangers and OG vampire Klaus, plus who's the funniest when the cameras stop rolling and on-set pranks that may or may not involve Ian Somerhalder mooning everyone. Then they humored us a little and answered this burning question: Since several cast members are musically inclined, and music plays such a huge part in the show, any chance you'd be up for a musical episode?

'The Vampire Diaries' Star Candice Accola On Caroline's Love Triangle & Vamp-Werewolf Romance (VIDEO)

by Maggie Furlong, posted Dec 1st 2010 11:00AM
Candice Accola, 'The Vampire Diaries'Candice Accola has had one hell of a season on 'The Vampire Diaries.' Since her character, Caroline, was smothered with a pillow, given blood and turned into a vampire, she's been thrown challenges that only seasoned vamps could sink their fangs into, and passed with flying colors. And lots of blood.

Now Caroline's got an ally in jock-turned-werewolf Tyler Lockwood (Michael Trevino). They've always had Matt (Zach Roerig) in common, but now it goes much deeper than that -- they've both become outsiders, discovering what their true powers are and trying to hide it all from the rest of Mystic Falls.

I caught up with bubbly Candice Accola to find out how she reacted to finding out she'd be undead this season, how much fun it is to play a completely different Caroline now and the question on every fan's mind: what's gonna happen with Caroline, Matt and Tyler? Will 'TVD' be the first to show vampire-werewolf sex? Watch and find out.

Review: The Vampire Diaries - The Turning Point

The Vampire Diaries: The Turning Point
(S01E10) "Too bad I live alone. I'm at the Ramada watching pay-per-view all day eating everything in sight, including the housekeeping." - Logan, since there's no one at his home to invite him in

As you can see, I'm a little crazy for Paul Wesley and all those muscles, so there ya go. Here's another one, in case you missed last week's episode, "History Repeating." He shows more and more skin with each episode.

We got lots more action and intrigue in this episode, involving Logan, the Sheriff, Caroline and of course, Elena, Damon and Stefan. And they certainly couldn't let the vampires-in-the-church storyline just drop, could they? Of course not. More after the jump.

Review: The Vampire Diaries - History Repeating

The Vampire Diaries
(S01E09) I was pretty much riveted to this episode of The Vampire Diaries all the way through, but especially at the end, when we learned a whole lot of stuff in the last few minutes. It was fun seeing the vamp brothers Stefan and Damon sort of buddy up, even if it wasn't really real. Given their long history, you have to think there must be some brotherly ... something there, even though Damon killed Stefan's BFF last week and then Stefan nearly killed Damon. Oh those kooky vampire brothers.

Review: The Vampire Diaries - 162 Candles

The Vampire Diaries: 162 Candles
(S01E08) "It's not every day a guy turns 162 years old." - Lexi to Stefan on his birthday

What?! Nooooo! They keep bringing in these great characters and then killing them off! Hopefully, they're just stashing the bodies somewhere for a mass resurrection at some point. And, by the way, I totally did not see that coming.

The Vampire Diaries started out great and continues to get better each week. It's so beautifully dark and gloomy. I love the Salvatore's gothic digs, and Stefan is showing considerable restraint at not offing his bad, bad brother Damon.
